‘Tis the Season

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. The days immediately following Thanksgiving all seem to have names – Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sofa Sunday, Cyber Monday. Tuesday, November 27 is Giving Tuesday – and is your opportunity to make a tax-deductible contribution to the Western Institute of Nursing.

Mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 27, and make a plan to participate by making a gift of any amount to participate in Giving Tuesday. Your tax-deductible gift will build the endowment that WIN is building to support new and larger grants to support nursing research conducted by WIN members and to recognize the significant contribution of WIN members to the nursing profession.

If all 750 members of WIN were to give a gift of only $20.18, in honor of the current year, we would raise over $15,000, making a significant step toward meeting our annual $20,000 fund raising goal. If half of those members decided on a contribution of $201.80, we would meet our annual goal and could add $50,000 to our endowment account! Wow!

If you wish to participate in Giving Tuesday and provide meaningful support WIN and contribute to expanding WIN’s programs to fund research grants and recognize members’ achievements, you may do so by clicking the button below or if you prefer to mail your donation please see the remittance address listed below.
